Calling all Canadian entrepreneurs, visionaries and self-starters–your big break is arriving now. On April 7, from 11am to 3pm, UberPITCH is coming to 7 cities across Canada.
If you wonder what an Uber driver-partner looks like, we can guarantee that there is no “typical” driver on the platform: from Gisele, a retired mental health care provider who now drives with Uber to earn an extra income – to Josh, a DJ who drives on Uber in order to stay connected to the city.
At Uber, our mission is to bring transportation as reliable as running water to everyone, everywhere: just tap a button, and your car arrives in minutes. While simple on the surface, the seamlessness of the Uber experience belies the enormous complexity that powers it. But now that we have this fundamental capability in place—a capability we like to think of as converting bits to atoms—in over 40 countries around the world, there are so many things we would love to build on top of it. We’ll never conceive of every great idea, though, and we could certainly never build them all.
